I love to participate in radio amateur contests. I never will have a chance to win such a contest, but it is a great chance for a QRP station because there is much activity on the bands and there are many stations with “big ears” (= big antennas) who will be able to hear you even with low power.
With “Curacao” I worked a new DXCC country in SSB (over 8000 km) …
Here are my results, all QSOs with 10 Watt output on a 17m random wire antenna as inverted V on a 10m fishing pole (I did not take part full time but only from time to time during that weekend):
